DESCRIPTION: Chart of Mosquito Cove on the north coast of Jamaica (Jamayca) near Barbican and between Lucea Harbor and Sandy Bay . North is oriented to the bottom. Numerous soundings and hazards are marked. Plate Number 4. Scale in cables.

Published in 1809, this large-scale port/harbor chart is one of 22 charts of ports in Haiti, Dominican Republic and Jamaica (on 16 plates) published by the Spanish Admiralty, the Direccion Hidrografia, in Part IV of the atlas "Portolano de la America Septentrional Construido en la Direccion Detrabajos Hidrograficos". Because of Spain's secrecy about its New World territories these charts represent some of the earliest detailed charts of these areas.
